9780300014754: Religious History of the American People

This classic work, winner of the 1973 National Book Award in Philosophy and Religion and Christian Century’s choice as the Religious Book of the Decade (1979), is now issued with a new chapter by noted religious historian David Hall, who carries the story of American religious history forward to the present day.
Praise for the earlier edition:
An unusual and praiseworthy book. . . . It takes a modern, almost anthropological view of history, in which worship is a part of a web of culture along with play, love, dress, and language.” B.A. Weisberger, Washington Post Book World

The most detailed, most polished of the works in its tradition.” Martin E. Marty, New York Times Book Review

An intellectual delight that one does not so much read as savor.” America

The definitive one-volume study by the leading authority.” Christianity Today

No one writing or thinking hereafter about America’s past will be able to ignore Ahlstrom’s magisterial account of the religious element.” American Historical Review
